Do people think that shows with analog generations should be archived?

How easy is it to remove a show from the archive? Seems to me that if it's easy to remove a show, and a better sounding recording surfaces we could easily replace the analog one.

That being said, I think that we *Should* include analog shows in the archive if there is no better representation of the show available.

If it's the only copy, then hell yes....If better sources come along, then by all means get rid of the cassette source.

same should go with AUD recordings. I know i've seen or have sources that sound a lot better than some of the recordings posted right now. Granted i cant put them on my computer and upload em due to insufficient programs and things, but is someone has an earthworks recording and someone else has a schoeps or dpa rig, i think that the better source should take place of the old one. Just 2cents

I think that it should at least be considered based on the following criteria: 1)is it a recording of historical importance? 2) is the sound quality good?

In this digital age we are too quick to dispose of our analog recordings. I have tons of great old analog and many of them haven't seen the light of a digital day. Lets face it, digital is a new technology and there are so many recordings from the predigi era. I think we should dig 'em up, clean and polish them, and spread 'em around!
